Wanna have some great Fall family fun to benefit a great cause this weekend. Well then, head upta LL Bean in Freeport for the annual Pumpkin Festival to benefit Camp Sunshine. The non-profit camp operates year round and is located on Sebago Lake in Casco.

They provide good times and support for children with life-threatening illnesses  and their families free of charge. This a beautiful example of the helpful humanity we need to see more of, that's for sure.


According to their Facebook page this is an Autumn tradition that has been going on since 2003 with the major attraction of thousands of carved pumpkins lit up on display at Bean's and around freeport. You can sponsor a pumpkin for $10 in memory of a loved one while you're there and the donation will go to Camp Sunshine. If you can't make it, you can do it online right here.
